Camping and HQ

Will be on site at the Gliding Club for caravans, campers and tents but there is no electric hook-up. Camping fees are £7.00 per person per night (children £3.50) and payable at registration. Due to space constraints we are unable to offer camping for anyone other than competing pilots and their partners/families or BP Cup staff. Facilities at the club are good with showers and toilets, a lounge, and the club kindly allow us to use their small kitchen. There is also a BBQ area in the garden. Free wifi is available and a lecture/briefing room is provided for our use. There is no bar so make sure you bring your preferred beverage, alternatively there is a very good pub, The Sun in nearby Chipping and their food is recommended. For those who prefer to have an electric hook-up there is a campsite not far away, also in Chipping (Caravan, Trailer Tent or Motorhomes only, no tents) http://www.brickhouseccs.co.uk/.

Transport

We will not be providing a minibus but will use the successful self-retrieve system as in previous years, asking pilots to double up in vehicles with comp funds contributing towards fuel costs. For retrieves of any distance, the comp funds will contribute towards taxi, bus and train fares but pilots are expected to negotiate fares with taxi drivers and fill taxis to capacity where at all possible. Our BPCup retrieve group on the widely used Telegram app helps the retrieve system to run smoothly and return pilots to HQ quickly.
